Learning the days of the week is a goal when teaching preschoolers and kindergarteners; they should know all of the days of the week. Try using some of the days of the week printables to help your students or child.
Kids start to learn the days by singing cute songs in preschool or with their parents. We always sing it to Adam’s Family tune, and my kids think it’s hilarious.
Parents should talk about the days with their kids on a regular basis through normal conversation. “Today is Tuesday, and we have to go to the grocery store.
“Tomorrow is Wednesday, and you have gymnastics on Wednesday!”
Gradually, your child will be ready to try some printable activities with the days on them. If you homeschool preschool, you can include learning some of the days in your goals for your 4-year-old. Here are some great options to get you started.
